We have new neighbours across the street. They have publicly

This answer was rated:

We have new neighbours across the street. They have publicly accused me of voyeurism, calling me a pervert, simply because I took a still photograph of the sunset. I have shown him the camera and the picture but he persists. It has led to blazing rows in the street and the bloke has threatened to tell everyone and even threatened violence. What can I do? It has been very distressing for me and my partner and we are losing sleep.

tdlawyer :

Hello, welcome to the website. My name isXXXXX can assist you with this.

tdlawyer :

Has this happened more than once?

Customer: Twice. First time he came to my door and that's when I showed him the picture I had taken earlier. Then again yesterday when he pulled up in his van in the street with witnesses. Unfortunately it degenerated into a loud slanging match
tdlawyer :

Okay. Then you can contact the police if this is concerning you and tell them that this is causing harassment.

tdlawyer :

You need 2 occasions of his actions causing you to be harassed, which you have now.

tdlawyer :

Then they have the power to warn him not to cause you any more problems.

tdlawyer :

If he does, then they can arrest him.

Customer: I have read cases where the police had taken away computers and cameras. Would they need to do this?
tdlawyer :

No, not to do with a harassment claim.

tdlawyer :

They don't need them to do that. His behaviour is the issue here.

Customer: Ok that's great. I'll have a chat with my partner. Thank you very much
tdlawyer :

You're welcome. Is there anything more I can assist with?

Customer: No thanks
